the filibuster. and we of course are waiting for the start of the nomination hearing for john kerry to be secretary of state. senator kerry is going before the committee that right now he chairs. foreign relations. and he'll be introduced by senators john mccain, by elizabeth warren and the current secretary of state, hillary clinton. it's expected to be very different than the fiery hearing yesterday in that very same room where secretary clinton made a passionate defense to republican senators aggressive questioning about what happened in benghazi. >> the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they would go kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? it's our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. >> i want to bring in ron, national correspondent and editorial director, and michael crowley, times deputy washington bureau chief. good morning, ron, let me start with you. i thought the hearing yesterday had so
saw john mccain intimating, they're trying to win some of them back here. >> absolutely. it's a group they tried to court every single election year that i can remember in the last couple years. the thing is, it's not necessarily that latinos, immigration is the number one thing on their list that's important. i think it was the economy this last election. part of it is the tone. you hear -- there's a lot of things that are said during this debate that has been hurtful to the republican party. i think when you talk to a lot of latino republican strategists they'll tell you that. so that is going to be one of the things they have to navigate. the tone and how they talk about this. in addition to -- on top of the action. >> what it really comes down to is all things being equal, though, when it comes down to immigration. that's where it stands out for this one group. >>> stand by. i want to bring in congressman steve israel who joins us right now. congressman, thanks for being here. >> good morning. >> let me start with this. even john boehner said now is the time to deal with immigrati
with offensive and bizarre comments. i'm here to say we've had enough of that. >> let's bring in john braybender and nbc political analyst and former pennsylvania governor ed rendell. good morning, guys. >> good morning. >> morning. >> so, john, the stupid party, is bobby jindal right? >> i think we've made a lot of mistakes. the first thing is to understand we did make those mistakes. the biggest problem i have that we have to work on is that the average american and hard-working and lunch bucket americans don't feel we represent and fight for them anymore. the president did something very clear when he wanted to raise tax breaks or get rid of tax breaks for the wealthy in that he forced the republicans to fight for the wealthy and the average american said we no longer understand them. if we're going to really change and do better on election day and particularly get the white house back, we better get average americans to think we're fighting for them every day not just a small group of americans. >> bobby jindal offered a few details on how to, quote, stop being the stupid party. he did also
weren't. john mccain said i would have liked to see a little more on outreach and working together. there was not, as i have seen in other inaugural speeches. i want to work with my colleagues. and i'm wondering what you think about this approach and i think that the push-back isn't surprising as much as we're surprised by just how strongly worded it was. >> republicans wasted no time whatsoever rebuking the president and the president, to be fair, this was not a speech about conciliation or compromise and in fact, the clip we heard about a nation of takers, referring to medicare and medicaid and social security, was basically a direct rebuke to congressman paul ryan, who was mitt romney's running mate. so the republicans have lots to bicker with, lots to single out in the president's inauguration speech, including the president didn't write it with the thinking of this is going to be a reach across the aisle type of message. >> yeah, obviously a very clear choice he made. let me play for you what senator tom coburn just said on "morning joe." >> i think he missed some opportunitie
actions by the french and malian military and need for john going insurance and investment to restore democracy in mali and restore development and positive pro inspects moving forward and how you think we can ensure that state and defense are coordinating through africom going forward. >> senator, i appreciate greatly your sustained attention to africa and i think it's going to be viewed as quite prophetic because there will be, i believe, i continuing set of challenges. you mentioned some of them but by no means, we've got boek ka ha ram in nigeria posing the threat of instability in one of the biggest oil producing nations in the world. something very important to our country. we've got other unrest and challenges coming down the west coast of africa, but we also have a success story, at least a hoped for beginning success story in somalia, what did the united states do there. when i became secretary of state, i recommitted american money to the amazon forces. we worked to train the ugandans and worked with and there were no short cuts. we had literally the boots of our american so
